It does appear that because ssh isn't going through cvs authentication it
doesn't know what user it is.  I've put in a fix for that - of course
with cygin ssh the owner/user will always be 'System' - there isn't a way
around that as it's an NT Limitation (you can't change the user ID when
you do a setuid).

In theory you could compile cvsnt under cygwin which would work better
with cygwin ssh..  it's not something I've tried, though.
